See students and teachers in action in this all-day OWL Visitation Day! Participants will spend time in student-centered, proficiency-based classes observing strategies and techniques for a variety of levels. See how movement, pairings and groupings, speaking and literacy are cohesively brought together in
one class period. Classes will be in Spanish, however, debriefs will be in English. Since many aspects are so visual, a non-speaking Spanish teacher will still benefit greatly from the experience. Participants will hear from students through a Student Panel.
Pre-reqs: Recommended for all teachers, with or without previous OWL workshop
- Observe and participate with students and teachers in an authentic environment
- Hear from students about their experiences
- Q&A time and Debrief with the facilitators
- Receive materials to effectively reflect and debrief
Proficiency & Engagement Strategies One Day Workshop
This workshop explores the foundational understandings of proficiency and engagement strategies in the classroom. The training will reveal a structure that creates an interactive, student-directed classroom. Participants experience the strategies through demos with students, when possible, and in whole and small groups. The focus is on an immersive environment where students are highly engaged and intrinsically motivated. Teachers leave with new techniques and relationships for continued collaboration!
